You, thriving, is the most important (and powerful) aspect of true happiness.
Life is full of ups and downs. Totally normal.
But those who consistently turn toward the 8 essentials of good mental health weather life with a tad more ease. (I swear it's true!)
Want to know how some people seem to always "have it all together" and seem happy, no matter what?
The truth is, they don't. But, I can 100% guarantee, their happiness involves some, if not all, of the 8 essentials. Two things happy, fulfilled people do differently:
1. They know what's important. They are small, but they are powerful. The 8 essentials that make your soul happy, no matter what life throws your way.
2. They do the things, even if they don't feel like it. Even on their "off" days, the most successful, thriving, happy people turn to the 8 essentials.
If you're like most people (me included), you're one of these things...
Busy go-getter with no shortage of ambition. But, life does feel a bit "hamster wheelish" at times, and it's hard to keep the focus on numero uno (that's you!).
Active person who spends hours doing for other people but you're left wondering "what about me?"
Weary parent who is tired and exhausted from being their everything, leaving no time for yourself. When you do have time, it feels like you can't get "caught up."
Swamped professional who feels stretched thin, overworked, and uninspired by a lackluster job where you no longer feel challenged or motivated.
Depleted person who lacks the motivation to get the new habits to stick.
You're smart, so you know what keeps people healthy (food, exercise, yada yada), but you aren't sure how to make habits stick.
Hey, Friend! I'm here to help you whip up some tools and inspiration so you can feel happy, satisfied with life, and fulfilled.
Or, get back on track when you don't. It's not super hard, once you do the things.
Let's do this!
"Eight Ways to Happy" is an extremely practical class that cuts through the psycho-babble and gets to the meat of what it takes to thrive.

Create a Life VisionPerhaps one of the most important tools of this entire class, you’ll create a life vision and a life theme. This will springboard you into action, so you set goals you can manage along your Happy Path. Plus, you're going to create a BHAG (big, hairy, audacious goal) that you'll use as a starting point for life planning.
Start and keep a daily Vision Journal as you write about your "Best Future Self" (BFS)You heard me -- Best. Future. Self. *Boom* Write your goals, affirmations, and expressions of gratitude that are tied to your greater Life Vision.
Prioritize your new happy strategies using printable calendars and planning guidesDiscover how easy it is to say no to tasks that do not fit into your life theme, and say yes to the life-giving, meaningful activities that serve to make your innards happy. (Happy in your liver, is what I like to say.)

“I am grateful for your presence in my life as you helped me through a difficult year of transition for me. I feel very blessed that you were part of my life. While the beginning of the year started with much pain, I am quite happy to say the end of the year is much better.”
“Thank you for your part in a pivotal period of progress in my life, which has radiated out through my family and beyond. I want to thank you for being there, really listening, and helping me feel comfortable seeking help...I cannot be more grateful for those who helped me reach a whole new, empowered, and balanced life. I have never felt better, more grounded, and able to be there for myself and my family.”
“I want to tell you from the bottom of my heart THANK YOU for all you did to help me...I owe you my gratitude for everything you did even down to just the listening aspects and focusing me when I was so scattered...I could never really repay you and I always felt that it was much more than a job with you and I thank you for the support, compassion, and love for my life.”
